Additionally a second blast at another chemical warehouse in China's eastern Shandong province occurred on August 22nd, adding more perplexing facts to this developing story. The alternative media is buzzing with theories as to what this means, and if it relates to a cold war style economic battle between the U.S. and China. At this point we can only speculate, but there does appear to be something more happening behind the scenes.

Caught On Tape: Another Huge Chemical Warehouse Explosion Rocks China
Who could have seen this coming?
Just a little over a week after a powerful explosion killed 114 and injured more than 700 in the Chinese port of Tianjin, it appears as though a second blast has occurred at a chemical warehouse, this time in China's eastern Shandong province. A residential area is reportedly located just 1 km away.
We'll await the details which we imagine will suggest that, as was the case in Tianjin, many more tonnes of something terribly toxic were stored than is allowed under China's regulatory regime which apparently only applies to those who are not somehow connected to the Politburo. Indeed, The People's Daily is reporting that the plant contained adiponitrile, which the CDC says can cause "irritation eyes, skin, respiratory system; headache, dizziness, lassitude (weakness, exhaustion), confusion, convulsions; blurred vision; dyspnea (breathing difficulty); abdominal pain, nausea, [and] vomiting."
There are two videos shown below. As of now, there's some confusion as to which is authentic.

An explosion has been reported at a chemical plant in China's eastern province of Shandong.Large flames can be seen from the site of the blast in Zibo County. There are so far no reports of any casualties.The People's Daily said a warehouse at the plant exploded and firefighters are at the scene. There is a residential area about 1km from the plant.Earlier this month blasts in the northern city of Tianjin killed at least 116 people, with hundreds hurt.Unverified YouTube footage showed a massive explosion at the Shandong plant.It is not yet clear if homes in the Shandong area have been damaged.
And from Reuters:
The factory produced adiponitrile, a colorless liquid that releases poisonous gases when it reacts with fire, the People's Daily said, citing the state-run Beijing Times.Seven fire brigades consisting of a total of 150 fire fighters and 20 fire engines were sent to the scene and fire brigades that are trained to work with fires involving chemicals are being dispatched, Xinhua said.Windows shattered in the village where the blast occurred, state media said, and tremors reverberated within 2 kilometers (1 mile) of the site of the explosion.

Tianjin explosion leads to massive fish die-off, mysterious foam falls out of the sky, burning the skin of citizens as Chinese government declares everything's fine
The first pictures of the mass fish die-offs and cyanide-infused rainfall have now emerged from Tianjin, China, following the catastrophic blast that has unleashed a wave of speculation about its real cause. Chinese dissidents told Natural News they believe the blast was carried out by the Pentagon using an exotic space-based weapon, and that it was intended to send a message to China to stop devaluing the yuan (i.e. currency wars).
The official explanation from the Chinese government -- which tells the truth about as rarely as the Obama administration -- is that this was merely a chemical explosion caused by some local business knuckleheads storing too much sodium cyanide in a storage facility.
Chinese dissidents told Natural News that this was a secondary explosion, and indeed, there are multiple reports of two explosions taking place at Tianjin ground zero.
From the BBC:
The China Earthquake Networks Centre said the initial explosion, in a city with a population of around 15 million, had a power equivalent to three tonnes of TNT detonating, while the second was the equivalent of 21 tonnes. The second was so big that satellites orbiting Earth picked it up as well. Chinese data site Cnbeta published pictures showing the sudden flare.
In other words, there was an initial explosion which set off a secondary explosion that was 700% larger. The initial explosion, we've been told, was the result of the Pentagon's "Rod of God" space weapon. Notably, the placement of this weapon would mean that the Pentagon had knowledge of vulnerable chemical storage dumps which could be targeted for chain reaction mega-explosions.
The result? An explosion so large it was easily seen from space. Here's a large automobile storage lot where cars were all but melted by the blast:
Sodium cyanide declared "totally safe" by the insane Chinese governmentThe secondary blast consisted of 700 tons of sodium cyanide detonating in an explosion that many of us still compare to a tactical nuclear strike.
Sodium cyanide, when it gets wet, releases hydrogen cyanide, a deadly substance that can poison skin with direct contact. Inhaling it can lead to severe burns of the lungs, and when it enters the water supply, it devastates lifes.
Here are some of the photos of the dead fish that are now surfacing. Hat tip to HK.on.cc and Shanghaiist.com for the photos:
Tianjin citizens covered in cyanide foam, skin burns reportedAlthough the Chinese government insists the area is totally safe -- yeah, and the EPA says it doesn't pollute rivers, either -- photos from Tianjin reveal a mysterious cyanide foam raining down on the citizens.
"Some who made contact with it are reporting a burning sensation on their face and lips, while others are reporting a stinging sensation on their arms. Some have said they experienced an itchy sensation," reports Shanghaiist.com:
Hilariously, the Chinese government insists "...that the pollutants are contained and not at risk of spreading beyond the evacuated area." (BBC)
The Guardian adds:
Niu Yuegang, deputy director at Tianjin’s fire department, confirmed that over 40 different types of chemicals have now been discovered at the blast site, including 700 tonnes of sodium cyanide, 800 tonnes of ammonium nitrate and 500 tonnes of potassium nitrate, according to local reports.
U.S. agricultural manufacturer John Deere was even forced to halt production in Tianjin due to the explosion and toxic chemicals.
Official stories are always a laugh riotChina's official story is that this is all the fault of some uniquely dishonest local business people who stored chemicals without a permit.
Yeah, right, because everywhere else in China, everybody follows the permitting rules for storing chemicals. Hilarious.
China's rapid scapegoating of this individual for the explosion is obviously a desperate ploy to silence all the talk of other theories that better explain what happened.
The official story, notably, in no way explains what ignited the chemicals in the first place. If you believe in the laws of chemistry and physics, you know these chemicals don't just spontaneously ignite without cause. Something had to trigger the first detonation which then triggered the secondary explosion.
China's total cover-up of the cause of the first detonation will only lead to more speculation about the real causes behind this large-scale catastrophe.
